Robert Cardinal Sarah

Unless silence dwells in man, and unless solitude is a state in which he allows himself to be shaped, the creature is deprived of God. There is no place on earth where God is more present than in the human heart. This heart truly is God’s abode, the temple of silence.”

(From The Power of Silence)

St. Thomas Aquinas, O.P.

We don’t study just for the sake of knowledge. We study because we desire to know the truth. And the truth is a person. The Truth is God.

St. Francis de Sales

“Be not of those who think perfection consists in undertaking many things, but of those who place it in doing well what little they do. For it is better to do little and do it well, than to undertake much and do it ill. Yes, little and good, this is the best.  

(From Introduction to the Devout Life
